Eight people were arrested on Wednesday morning after police seized drugs, including 230 grams of ice, along with cash, and stolen goods from homes across the region. Officers searched 13 homes in Shepparton, Mooroopna, Echuca, Kyabram, Tatura, and at South Morang in Melbourne’s outer north-east.

A quantity of stolen goods was also uncovered, including 13 motorbikes, computers, a tandem trailer, and tools.

Five men and one woman from Shepparton between the ages of 22 and 47 were arrested and are assisting police.

Another two men, from Mooroopna and Kyabram, were also arrested.

Police said the drug ring had links to illegal trafficking in New South Wales and the arrests came after an eight-month investigation.
